Somehow his amendment to make it clear that we are now actively supporting Al Qaeda doesn't give me the warm fuzzies...

Homosexual activists were able to achieve so much because they were able to first take over the APA and then take homosexuality off the ist of psychiatric disorders. After this it took decades of pro-homosexual propaganda from Hollywood before the homosexuals were able to achieve the level of acceptance they have now. Unfortunately, I don't think we can replicate this model for preborn humans. The pro-life movement will never have the money and resources of the pro-deathers.
“We’ve got Christians calling Christians ungodly,” he said. “It’s digressing to a sad point rather than both sides being in prayer and seeking compromise.” How about Christians calling Christians 'statists?' This is why I hate the use of zoning laws in these situations. It's their property and they don't want to display anything obscene, let them do it.
OK, now I understand that he thinks these hearings are a waste of time, because he has already made up his mind. But before we start sending arms and running bombing missions ON BEHALF OF AL QAEDA, can he at least pretend liek he's paying attention?!?!?!
Next up from these nuts: "The Nazi Logistics Game!" Help poor Nazis, trying to fight an expensive war on two fronts, find the resources to kill millions of Jews and other "undesirables." I would hope that this game would put a more concrete, human face on the issue, that players would not see these Nazis as evil or shameful, but understand the difficult (often impossible) situations they’re in, and the difficulties they faced in making and achieving their choice to exterminate the Jews.
That is because McVeigh withdrew his appeals, so the sentence was carried out expediciously. Hasan may want to waive his appeals, but miilitary courts are required by statute to review death sentences regardless of any waivers
I think I'd save my dog's droppings before him...
Not only did Bales have significant PTSD issues that may have been ignored by his commanders, but the evidentiary issues involved would have been staggering. The ANA and local police took control of the crime scenes immediately and a of evidence was lost. Also, it would have been incredibly difficult to deal with finding and transporting Afghani locals to the states and back for trial. I think the government recognized that even though it could certainly prove Bales was the killer, his significant PTSD issues might still mean a sentence of life. Since he was willing to plead and save the government millions of dollars, he got a deal. However, I do agree that to the uninformed, especially in the middle east, there is a lot of propagando potential here.
By regulation, the military services only use lethal injection now. Even if other options had been on the table, I doubt the military would try to hang a man from a wheelchair.
Charles, he was adjudged total forfeitures. By regulation, these go in effect 14 days after the sentence is announced, so he will be paid for two more weeks. The purpose of the delay is to give a soldier a little time to ask the convening authority (usually the post or division commander) to defer forfeitures and reductions for the benefit of the soldier's dependants. In this case, there is no way that happens, so he's got half a paycheck coming and then it's done.
OR... Congress could simply get rid of this overreaching legislation which only protects casinos and their lobbyists. Why should congress be in the business of protecting monopolies? Why not let the market decide the appropriate place for internet gambling?
